Andrew Ferrari

Personal Profile

Andrew has been coaching lacrosse for the better part of the last 12 years and is currently Assistant Coach/Offensive Coordinator for Notre Dame Preparatory School and Marist Academy in Pontiac, MI. From the youth level to high-school and beyond, Andrew has had the pleasure to coach hundreds of lacrosse players. As an attackman himself, his experience as a coach has been primarily focused on coaching offense and the movements and mechanics behind shooting and passing. To Andrew, every dodge, shot, and pass has the potential to change the course of a game. Understanding how every movement and input affects the result and the output means understanding how to write your own story and dictate your own success. When not coaching lacrosse, Andrew works in the software industry in post-sale support and customer success, helping customers maximize the value they get from the software they purchase. His customers range from small businesses to large, global enterprises - a level of comfort he brings to coaching smaller, newer athletes and also experienced veterans.
